Jason Vega is a New York City born and raised entrepreneur currently residing in Long Beach, California. He is passionate about building strategies to cultivate healthy, reciprocal relationships focused on amplifying underrepresented diverse voices and fostering an inclusive environment in video games, entertainment, and STEM.

He was inspired to take that experience forward and co-organized the Game Devs of Color Expo in 2017 & 2018.
